So, I've dropped the ball a tiny bit on this, but for all of you out there who make even semi-real movies, I'm sure you heard last week's dramatic news about entertainment payroll company Axium unexpectedly shutting down. I don't know much about this 'real moviemaking' stuff, but sources close to Boredom at its Boredest confirm that this is a pretty big deal. So what is a filmmaker to do? How about try these guys:

IndiePay

Here's some information from the inside:

"As you may know, IndiePay was created specifically for film and television productions by our founder (John Finn) and his team of production accountants, with over a decade of experience on projects with budgets of up to $70M. We recognized an opportunity to offer producers a streamlined payroll system that frees up budget dollars while reducing hassles. We act as any other payroll company. We handle payroll tax payments, unemployment and workers compensation claims, union p&w and dues remittances, and all the other details administered by our competitors. In addition, you get the added benefit of our insight as payroll accountants and production personnel, watching over your cash flow -- and the use of our accounting software, which is currently the only G/L program which will not only seamlessly import Axium data files but has also automated the tax rebate application process in New York and Connecticut (with other states in development)."
